Barbey, 78, says he saw former premier Zhou Enlai many times (during the 1973 visit). “The trip by t

he French president lasted for five or six days, and Zhou was with the delegation every day for reasons of protocol.”上海419品茶微信

Barbey recalls that whenever Pompidou visited Beijing, Shanghai or Datong in Shanxi prov

上海419ince, where the French president traveled to see archaeological sites, he saw Zhou every day.

“Zhou is a special figure to the French people. He spent some years in France as a young m

an, among the generation of Chinese students who came to the country on a study-work program.”上海419

Barbey remembers asking Zhou’s interpreter, a woman in her mid-50s, how many French

上海419interpreters of her caliber were there in China-and she answered there was “about 11”. When he vis

ited Shanghai, he was told that there were only three French people living in the city.上海419品茶微信

One of the most iconic photos Barbey took from the 1973 visit is a portrait of Zhou when he

accompanied Pompidou on a boat trip around the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

上海419The image is not included in the show at the National Art Museum, but a portrait of another i

mportant figure who had a connection with France-a snapshot of Ba Jin sunbathing in 1980-is on display. Th上海419

e prominent Chinese author also studied in France for two years during the late 1920s.

“I met him very briefly in Shanghai at his house. He still spoke French,” says Barbey.上海419

The warm tones and sharpness of Barbey’s imagery also pres

上海419品茶微信erve the vibrant details of people’s everyday lives at a time when taking photos remained a lux

ury for many. Many of the scenes and ways of life have now vanished from the fast-paced metropolis. For example, one pho

to Barbey took in Nanjing shows boats with elongated sails traveling along the Yangtze River, while another photo show上海419

s paddy fields on the outskirts of Shanghai which have now been replaced by high-rise buildings.

Jean Loh, a photography curator and publisher, comments in the Color of China’s foreword: “Beijing, Shanghai, Sichu上海419品茶微信

an and Guangxi are, in his eyes, so different and distinct from one another … His Kodachrome film faithfully captured

the ochre red of the imperial palace of the Forbidden City and the morning blue of the Shanghai Bund.”

Nansha district was established in the southernmost area of Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, upon the appr

oval of the State Council on April 28, 2005. In September 2012, the district was upgraded into a national new district.上海后花园品茶微信

Nansha is located at the geometric center of the Greater Pearl River Economic Region. It is the only acc

上海后花园ess to the sea in Guangzhou, and about 38 nautical miles from Hong Kong and 41 nautical miles from Macao.

ccording to the outline development plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Ma

cao Greater Bay Area recently issued by the State Council, Hengqin of Zhuhai in Gua上海后花园

ngdong province will be advanced as an in-depth cooperation demonstration zone for the region.

Hengqin of Zhuhai will be established as Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao in-depth cooperation

上海后花园品茶微信demonstration zone. Coordinating Macao’s development into a world-class tourism and leisure ce

nter, Hengqin of Zhuhai will be built into a high-standard leisure and tourism island. Measures to facilitate visitors com

muting between Hengqin and Macao will be taken to allow tourism industry employees to work in Hengqin.上海后花园

Hengqin will develop through connecting with Zhuhai Bonded Area and Hong

上海后花园品茶微信wan Area. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Logistics Park will be built on the island.

Construction of key cooperation projects including Hengqin-Macao Yo

uth Entrepreneurship Valley and Guangdong-Macao Cooperation Indu上海后花园

strial Park will be fostered. Research on the construction of Guangdong-Macao Information Port will be conducted.

Covering 803 square kilometers, Nansha is composed of nine towns and neighborhoods: Wanqinsha town, Huangg上海后花园品茶微信

e town, Hengli town, Dongyong town, Dagang town, Lanhe town, Nansha neighborhood, Zhujiang neighborhood, an

上海后花园品茶微信d Longxue neighborhood. At the end of 2016, there were 789,400 permanent residents in Nansha.

Nansha has focused on the construction of strategic industries to improve core competi

tiveness. Major industries in Nansha include shipping logistics services, high-end business and trade s上海后花园

ervices, smart technology, high-end equipment technology, tourism services, and healthcare.

上海后花园品茶微信In 2017, Nansha achieved 139.2 billion yuan ($20.7 billion) in GDP, an increase of 10.5 percent year-on-year. Its fixed assets inv

estment was worth 74.5 billion yuan, up by 3.9 percent year-on-year, with a major investment in its tertiary industry.

To this end, a garbage上海千花网 reward and punishme

nt mechanism will be established to guide and encourage residents to separate their waste.

The comprehensive coverage pattern of domestic waste classification has taken shape, and上海千花网女神会所

more than 70 percent of residential areas achieve the set waste-classification standard.

上海千花网Shanghai has simultaneously followed the construction period of nine domestic garbage treatm

ent projects and accelerated work on three organic garbage projects and four other garbage projects.

By the end of 2019, the other garbage incineration capacity will reach上海千花网

19,300 tons per day and organic garbage capacity will reach 5,500 tons per day.

上海千花网女神会所Adhering to the four categories method and forming the Shanghai model

Shanghai’s waste classification standard has changed many times.

Today the city’s standard is set to the aforementioned four categories of waste.上海千花网

Regulations on this standard clearly categorize the whole process: units and individuals sh

ould be classified at source; property companies should be classified and transferred; receiving enterprises sh上海千花网女神会所

ould be classified and transported; and the final disposal enterprises should be classified and disposed.

上海千花网Clarifying the purpose of the four categories establishes a social responsibi

lity system so that garbage producers, government departments, managers, collection, transportation and dis

posal units and social organizations can perform their duties and responsibilities.上海千花网女神会所

This is all with the goal of putting in place the Shanghai model of Chinese domestic waste classification.

 Forming a system based on the rule of law上海千花网

Shanghai in 2000 became China’s first pilot for municipal solid waste classification.上海千花网女神会所

To ensure the pilot’s success, the Shanghai Municipal Government in 2014 issued ten policies and documents.

A 2015 report by Brookin上海千花网olars Stuart Butler an

 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

aid “there remains a stark, persistent, white-black racial divide” from the rate of poverty to the level of education.

上海千花网Rice can also compare notes with her current colleagues, such as Derek

Hyra, an associate professor at the American University, where Rice is now a disting上海千花网女神会所

uished visiting research fellow in its School of International Service. I cherish my chat with Hyra on the racial issue two y

上海千花网ears ago in Washington and learned a lot from his book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Rice may call me biased if I share my observations on the racial issue after living and working in

Washington for five years. But fellow journalists have covered extensively the racial segregation in Washington.上海千花网女神会所

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

Re-weighting of indexes 上海会所affect capital flows

Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten

上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.

Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信

Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la

上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent-a significant inc

rease from the current 0.7 percent-of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.

The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所

na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f

上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.

And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所

ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R

ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信

The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a

sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr

上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and

other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit

al across emerging markets. As a result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for glo上海会所

bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

上海会所品茶微信Welcome shift for Chinese firms and global investors

An increased weighting for China’s securities in these indexes in the MSCI would me

an a larger allocation of AUM by foreign fund managers into the Chinese markets. While this shift would b上海会所品茶微信

e a welcome development for both Chinese enterprises seeking financing and global i

nvestors searching for emerging opportunities, it potentially represents bad news for other emerging markets.

Japanese convenience上海夜生活an porn convenience sto

Major convenience stores in Japan announced on Tuesday that the

y will stop selling pornographic magazines in an effort to create a “comfortable enviro上海夜生活

nment” before the country plays host to international sports events, such as the 2020 Olympics.

上海夜生活品茶微信7-Eleven Japan Co, Lawson Inc and FamilyMart Co, the top three convenience store chain operators, have all dec

ided to end the sale of adult publications and manga comics by the end of August, citing concerns over har

ming the country’s image before the 2019 Rugby World Cup and next year’s Tokyo Olympics.上海夜生活

The companies said they hope the decision will create a more w

上海夜生活品茶微信elcoming environment for women and children and will avoid giving off a bad impression o

f the country as Japan prepares for a flood of foreign visitors during the sports events.

“In the past, 7-Eleven was mostly used by male customers to buy beverages and fast foo上海夜生活

上海夜生活”However, as the role and usage of 7-Eleven stores has changed in recent years, 7-Eleven beca

“We also considered the increasing number of foreign custom

The move will not have a major economic impact on the chain, as adult magazines account for less than上海夜生活

1 percent of total sales at the roughly 20,000 7-Eleven stores across Japan, a spokesperson said.

According to Lawson, the company had already stopped selling such magazines at outlets in Okinaw上海夜生活品茶微信、

a in November 2017 and has now decided to expand the ban to about 14,000 of its stores nationwide.

FamilyMart reported that 2,000 of its 16,000 franchises had already stopped selling adult magazines.

I hope to interpret the上海品茶微信t from a geographical

 perspective to paint a picture of the waters, mountain ranges, folk customs and rituals in

China, using a large-scale orchestra,” says Zhou Long. “It’s like a musical map of China.”上海品茶微信

Elements of folk music used in the concerto include traditional M

上海品茶微信女神会所ongolian khoomei, a unique type of throat-singing, the contrabassoon, the piccolo and the T

ibetan “Bon’e ri” music form, used in rituals, that is mimicked by the trombone and English horn.

According to Zhou Long, various techniques have been used in his composition to mimic the tone of traditi上海品茶微信

onal Chinese instruments. “It is an important way for me to showcase the cultural spirit of China,” he says.

Shui Lan, a conductor who has played Zhou’s compositions several times, praises Zhou’s work as being colorful and full of imagination.

上海品茶微信女神会所”Sometimes I would ask instrumentalists to think about Debussy t

o help them understand Zhou’s music, and they immediately get it,” he says.

“This concerto is grand and magnificent, but with details that are intricat上海品茶微信

e and precise,” he adds. “Zhou Long worked very closely together with us. He would sit at di

上海品茶微信女神会所fferent locations in the music hall to experience the acoustic balance and make adjustments.”

Zhou Long attributed his knowledge of folk music to his experience of studying at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing上海品茶微信

during the 1980s when he collected many folk songs from remote areas each summer.

上海品茶微信”These traditional elements of Chinese culture and folk music are fundamental and inseparable parts of my composition. We
